Those who think of Charlie Chaplin as the example of what silent movies were like may be surprised to know that films were being produced 20 years before Chaplin got involved.

In the closing years of the 19th Century, young J.D. Wilkinsons small-town world is turned upside down when he views the first Texas exhibition of Edisons Vitascope machine. He becomes part of the first baby steps taken by the moving pictures in their move from novelty to art form. J.D. is present for some historic moments and crosses paths with people like D.W. Griffith and Buster Keaton in their formative years. This Is Where I Came In accurately portrays the pioneers whose adventurous spirits shaped the motion picture into the greatest media tool ever invented.

Along the way, J.D. experiences the love of a mysterious woman, the hatred of a corrupt official, and his own coming of age in a period when miraculous technologies were being invented almost daily. I knew movies could capture life, J.D. says. I just didnt know they would capture mine.
